Lot Essay

‘The Heroes paintings represent an extraordinary achievement for the artist, for in their image he found himself. Painted in less than a year, they have continued to inform all his subsequent work. Issues concerning the figure, form, colour and line, with which he had experimented since his student days, were resolved in these canvases’
(D. Waldman, quoted in Georg Baselitz, exh. cat., Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, 1995, p. 56).
